Human Condition is inspired by Luke’s recent travels to Gallipoli as well as the arid Australian interior and green headlands of Bruny Island off southern Tasmania.

The exhibition features a series of landscape paintings and studies that explore Sciberras’ emotional attachment to place. Through immersing himself in the landscape Sciberras fosters a deep understanding of the unique character and mood of a location. His paintings are layered with meaning and act as portraits as well as landscapes, capturing the personal and cultural histories and the human condition.
Sciberras lives and works in Hill End. He graduated from the National Arts School with a bachelor in Fine Art in 1997. He is regarded as a significant artist within the contemporary landscape genre, Australian critic John McDonald stated, “Luke is one of the significant emerging landscape artists of his generation”.
If you’re in the Port Macquarie area this evening please join Luke from 6pm at the Glasshouse Gallery.
The show runs from the 27th of March until April 26
